Let Freedom Ring!!

I love the 4th of July and love to decorate for the 4th of July even more. I think there is such a long break from Easter to another holiday and that is why I love to decorate for it so much. We are going to my mom's (Meemommie's) for the 4th of July and it is full of family traditions, but I thought I would share my entry way decor for the 4th. I got this cute pillow at Hobby Lobby last year, but I saw it again there this year.
I love to decorate the entry way. I do something here all the time. I had to adjust some of the decor to incorporate the hard earned baseball trophies from the end of the season. They have found their way up to the boy's bedrooms and Big Daddy's office.
I bought this iron tree a couple of years ago and have LOVED it!! I love figuring out a theme for it for each season or holiday. I found these lanterns in the dollar section at Target last summer. Perfect!!!
Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty
These red chairs are from Garden Ridge, sometimes we drag them out the front door and sit on the porch and watch the kids play in the cul-de-sac.

My boys rooms are sort of Texas lodge, meets Americana, meets sports. So I snag these throw pillows from their beds this time of year.

You can do alot of decorating with little flags from Dollar Tree. Poke 'em here...

and everywhere!!

Little bench on my front side porch, the bench is from Canton Trade Days. (It starts this weekend).
I will have lots of fun pictures from our trip and activities/festivities to post when I get back. My mom doesn't have Internet at her house, only at her little office. Maybe I can hi-jack off someone's wireless in her neighborhood.
Everyone have a wonderful and safe Independence Day. Enjoy your families, traditions and make some new cherished memories.

  7. Thank you so much for trading buttons with me! I'm happy I discovered your site and will be back! And cut blog design - the background especially is so pretty and cheerful!

  8. I love your tree! I have an every day tree as well but it is an actual Christmas tree that I try to pass off as an everyday tree. It gets decorations for every season. Right now it is magnolias. The Hubster HATES it! He could much better tolerate a tree like yours. My mom has that same bench and I love that as well. How long do trade days last in Canton?
